We Reflect on Our Blessings

Posted by on Jan 5, 2012 in PRE-SCHOOL NEWS, SHAS NEWS | No Comments

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break!

I am so proud of all the Preschool and Kindergarten students. We had a FANTASTIC Christmas Program, followed by a well deserved pizza party. Everyone worked so hard on their parts!

During the Advent season, the preschool students learned all about Jesus’ birth. We talked about the advent wreath and used this calendar to count down the days until Jesus’ birth. We learned the wreath is in a shape of a circle because God’s love never ends! We learned the true meaning of the Candy Cane! The candy cane is a very special Christmas Candy. It is the same shape as a shepherd’s staff. If you turn the candy cane in your hand it looks like the letter J. J is for Jesus, who was born on Christmas Day. The red reminds us of his suffering and his blood. The white reminds us when we give our lives to Jesus, his blood washes away our sins, making us white and pure as snow.

I hope during the Advent season, each of your families took some time to reflect on all your blessings!
